Jason Kenney Gets Involved In Alberta Tory Leadership Battle

Jason Kenney and a number of other hard right wing Conservative MP’s will travel back to Alberta this week to throw their political weight and organizational expertise behind Ted Morton in his fight for the Alberta Progressive Conservative leadership and premiership.

Kenney, a former Reform Party Member of Parliament, now parliamentary secretary to Stephen Harper, strongly endorsed Morton’s hard right wing policies, "Ted isn't just seeking the premiership for the sake of being premier," said Kenney. "he's seeking it to change things -- which is the fundamental difference between himself and Jim Dinning."

Kenney is one of a number of Alberta Tory MP who've said they'll head back to Calgary from Ottawa as early as Wednesday, when the House of Commons adjourns for the week. Also in tow with Kenney will be another far right former Reform MP, Rob Anders.

"It's a Reform party takeover in provincial politics," said David Taras, political analyst at the University of Calgary, adding the city could prove to be a battleground of epic proportions between these "two very different" visions for the party.


I'd like to believe that outside of Calgary SE, Albertans wouldn't be fool enough to listen to Kenney.

But you can run a bale of hay in Alberta and get it elected as long it's branded "Conservative".

My hope is that there just isn't that much room for Morton to pick up support. (Although, as Slap Upside The Head says, "if you can’t be a shining inspiration, a horrible warning is just as effective."
